Butterflies and Blossoms

Hello again.  I finally got a little craft time last night.  My room is still a mess, but things are so crazy I needed to make something to distract myself before I go insane.  hehe
I made this card using the brand new set from Flourishes called Butterflies and Blossoms.  It has the most beautiful images on it.  I love that Flourishes always has the most amazing sentiments in their sets as well.  I forgot to take a picture of the inside.  I will have to do that first thing in the morning. 
 I am so disappointed that my sewing machine isn't working.  My card would look so much better with stitching on it.  It liked to have shredded a card I made the other day.  I need to find time in my already crazy schedule to fix it.  Any volunteers?

I used the sketch at Card Patterns to get me going.  I used a circle for the inside instead of a square.  Otherwise I followed it pretty close.

Thanks so much for stopping by
Hugs,
Heather

Hi Heather! So sorry your move was so stressful. I just moved too, we started the day before Thanksgiving but thankfully ours went smoothly. The most annoying thing for us was having to wait weeks to get our internet back, but we've got it now:) Your card is so lovely, I really love this set, so pretty!

Sorry to read about the sewing machine. Since I can't sew worth a hoot and only own a tiny little craft one, can't help I am afraid. This is a beautiful card! The polka dot paper paired with the blossoms and butterfly is lovely!

So sad about your sewing machine, but this card looks absolutely fabulous no matter! Great image for the sketch!

Heather that is a lovely card. Maybe you just need to get the machine serviced. But, I don't think sewing on it would make it more beautiful! It is just lovely!

Hugs, Pat Smith
